After the big NBA name players withdrew from playing in the World Cup games in China it should be no surprise the U.S. team will finish no better than 7th place in this years World Cup Games. After LeBron, Kevin, Russell, James, and Anthony (if you are a NBA fan you know these players last names) all withdrew their names from participating and the basketball world quickly catching up with the USA in basketball skills, I saw this coming from a mile away. Losing to Spain and Serbia, two teams with several players also in the NBA and the fact those countries players have played together for decades should not be shocking. This USA team did qualify for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo although you can expect a different group of players. Jerry Coangelo, who will oversees the 2020 Olympic squad has stated he will remember the names of players who dropped out of the World Games, which can only be taken as a threat of not being chosen for the Olympic team next year. I believe that is just talk, there is no way Jerry Coangelo would deny any of the names I listed earlier from playing on the Olympic squad. Players seem to care more about the Olympics than they do the World Cup, so I expect the USA to win the Gold Medal in Tokyo in 2020! The picture posted of the 1996 Olympic Basketball Team is to just remind everyone that when we send our best there is NO country that can compete with us, at least not on the basketball court!
